the fastest filly

by BustersRodeo on Jun 30, 2008

This book follows the life of filly Ruffian-who from the time she won her first race in record time-was a wonder on the track. She dazzled everyone who saw her from the way she carried herself on the track to just how big a filly she was. NO one doubted her courage but her terrible breakdown and her fight to live are heartbreaking. She was buried at Belmont park and anyone who goes there can see her grave marked by a horseshoe hedge and flowers just past the finish line. For anyone who loves horses and loves thoroughbreds, this book is a delight. It is sad --but her memory lives on in her story and in her race record. Much like recent great fillies, RAGS TO RICHES AND EIGHT BELLES-she had a special way about that anyone who ever saw her remembered. A wonderful read.


Ruffian: A wondrous Horse

by Ruffian on Jul 5, 2007

Ruffian is a horse that I find hard to describe because she was everything to me. I'd like to say that anyone would love this book, however, one definitely should have a love for horses and horseracing to fully understand what she stands for. To his day Ruffian's feats have not been duplicated and I doubt they will be. I am partial to this book because Ruffian and I have been through a lot together but I'm hopeful others will find a connection and enjoy the reading experience.
